Over 1000 Weight Watchers Items for Sale!

A few weeks ago we told you about those hard-to-find Weight Watchers snack cakes, and how they were for sale on eBay.  Well, there's more good eBay news for points-counters and core plan followers;   there are tons of Weight Watchers products up for grabs -- books, foods, tools, etc.  Looking for recipes, Just 2 Points Bars, vintage memorabilia, or calculators?  They're all there!  And if you're lucky, you may even nab a recipe for "Fishballs," just one of the bizarre throwback recipes in a set of Vintage WW Recipe cards!  (We have these 1974 cards at the HG headquarters and they're hours of fun.  And, as delightful as they sound, we haven't actually tried the "Fishballs.")

It's American Chocolate Week!

Guess what?  It's American Chocolate Week! (Which you may have already guessed if you read the title of this news item.)  This special celebration of chocolate doesn't mean you should throw caution to the wind and gobble up pounds of the stuff, but you can indulge wisely.  As you probably know, chocolate is mood-lifting and good for your heart (especially dark chocolate).  Pssst -- here's a sneak peek at Hungry Girl's special Vitalicious Chocolate week offer.  It's the perfect way to celebrate American Chocolate Week, and if you use promo code "guiltfree" --  you'll get free shipping on this sampler pack!

McDonald's Tries to Get Healthy...Again!

In their latest effort to combat all the backlash from the movie "Supersize Me," bad press, and obesity lawsuits, McDonald's is rolling out a "Healthy Living" campaign.  The "It's what I eat and what I do...I'm lovin' it" campaign includes new salads, new sports star-studded TV ads, new packaging, and a fresh series of Ronald McDonald videos teaching kids how to eat well and stay active.  McDonald's also promises to make every effort to remove trans fats from all of their foods, including their fries.  Those trans fat free fries have been in development forever.  Hope to see them soon...

The Buzz!

Rita's, the country's largest Italian ice chain, will celebrate the first day of Spring by giving out free ices on Sunday, March 20th.  They're fat free but high in sugar -- so get the sugar free ones if she's offering those!  ***Holy Mackerel...A new study showed that eating fish makes people happier.  Apparently the Omega-3 fatty acids found in most seafood helps people feel less depressed.  ***Hardy-har-heart!  Another new study has found that laughter is good for the heart.  It relaxes blood vessels and boosts blood flow.  ***Good news for fans of whole grains.  The Whole Grains Council says it is introducing "Good source" stamps that will let consumers know if products are good sources of, excellent sources of, or made entirely of whole grains!  A slew of companies have already signed on to use these seals -- including Kashi, Roman Meal and Bruegger's Bagels.  ***That's all we've got...HG Out!

Mmmmm...Free Ices!

CHEW ON THIS:

Today, March 14th, is National Potato Chip Day.  The best way to celebrate is DEFINITELY with Wise Choice Snack Crisps or Baked Lay's.  But don't overdo it...
